A model management system for combat simulation
Dolk, Daniel R.
MetadataShow full item record
The design and implementation of a model management system to support combat modeling is discussed. Structured modeling is introduced as a formalism for representing mathematical models. A relational information resource dictionary system is developed which can accommodate structured models. An implementation is described. Structured modeling is then compared to Jackson System Development (JSD) as a methodology for facilitating discrete event simulation. JSD is currently better at representing the dynamic aspects of simulation whereas structured modeling excels in representing the static aspects. A structured model of an existing combat model is presented. Finally, recommendations are made to strengthen structured modeling as a tool for discrete event simulation. Keywords: information resource dictionary system, structured modeling, Jackson system development, discrete event simulation, combat simulation
